when i try to select any other branch other than master and download the zip file it downloads the master branch code … ehy does it happen??
There seems to be a bug at the moment, you’re not the only one to hit it:
The second post in that thread has a workaround.
I am curious about how this gets reported and when it will be fixed. The work-around seems to be to copy the URL and edit it for the branch you need.
All branches now download master
The only difference in the URL is the name of the branch
Try by adding zipball in the url, for example
If the repository is https://github.com/octocat/Hello-World and you want to download the test branch tape this url https://github.com/octocat/Hello-World/zipball/test
